Awad survives yet another round ending in a submission attempt.

Round Three –  They touch gloves as the crowd screams for Awad who appears to be down on the score cards. Awad has not really been moving his head and is taking far too much punishment from Anderson. Awad opens up with the with his boxing but Anderson has the answer to slow him down with his striking. The crowd again starts chanting for Awad who needs to finish Anderson. If the fight was based on looks, Awad would be winning as he’s done more damage to Anderson’s face, but Anderson has been counter punching and landing more strikes and submission attempts. Awad takes cage control landing a knee before getting turned on the cage only to get a take down landing in side mount, but Anderson transitioned from a guillotine to an arm bar only for Awad to slip out again and this one is going to the judges.

Your winner by unanimous decision, Derek Anderson!

Pitbull ducks the jab to get off the cage as he and Henderson continue to dance around the cage as the round comes to an end.

Round Two – The fighters continue to dance a little but are trying to be more active as the crowd continues to boo. Pitbull takes Henderson down with a double leg before trying to climb his back.
